Dates are high on calories, but they are rich in both insoluble and soluble fibers and can clean your gastrointestinal system. So if you are just starting to lose weight, postpone it with a month and during this time, stop eating junk, eat at least 100 g. of dates a day, eat a lot of protein. Your scale may show no difference, but you will start noticing the results on your belt first.
